Principal's Message


Dearest Vista Family,

It is truly an honor to serve as principal of Vista Charter Middle School! When I first came to Vista in 2015, I was certain that we could transform the school experience for our school community and I am proud of the successes we’ve been able to celebrate to date.
We boast a rigorous instructional program and high levels of student learning that can be evidenced by significant gains in state testing over the years. Most recently, we have had the pleasure out outperforming all local LAUSD schools. Our students are engaged in Social Emotional Learning, a strong STEAM education and learning for Global competence on a daily basis. While engaged in academic rigor, they are also practicing and modeling characteristics of loving and compassionate citizens: Grit, Empathy, Accountability and Respect.
I am passionate about collaboration and continuous learning with our staff, students and families to create an environment of high-quality learning where our students are loved and cared for. We are proud of our instructional program. Additionally, our community partnerships have allowed us to ensure that our students have the services and resources necessary to be successful. Our Vista Eagles deserve it! My door is always open as we work together to transform the school experience for our students and school community!


Looking forward to another great school year!
